The Transition Movment is gathering speed. Paul Piper of Wind-Works in Germany has recently written that “51 percent of all alternative energy in Germany is owned by citizens and farms”. This energy transition is an increasingly dramatic power shift from traditional markets and its big players into small-scale and community-owned projects.
